Presidential Ponderings

The more I think about the next Presidential election, the more annoyed and depressed I get. Ron Paul has been written off as a loon, Fred Thompson's not in the race anymore, Mike Huckabee isn't looking overly electable, and McCain and Romney are the GOP frontrunners. And, to make matters worse, Giuliani looks to be McCain's running mate, should McCain get the nomination.
On the Dem side, it's Obama and Clinton, both of which are incredibly repulsive choices. I would guess that the ticket will end up being the two of them, though they'll fight bitterly to decide who'll get top billing.

In other words, the two-party choices look incredibly bad. Some folks have talked of heading to another country should Hillary win, but there aren't a lot of good choices for that, either. The problem is that the Dems are looking to turn America into the same sort of place much of the rest of the world is. And that's not where I want to be.
